From most points, we are less than two hours from some of the worlds' top renowned medical facilities, educational institutions, and metropolitan areas – including Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Baltimore. Our beach resorts are one of our biggest tourist attractions, with miles of pristine coastline, plus we have gorgeous state parks. With low real estate taxes and tax free shopping, Delaware also offers the opportunity to get more for less. Even though it's a small state, Delaware is a great place to work, live and play!
